I own a great book called Outrageous Marketing, This book is a very worthwhile read.
One of the best points is that your fan base will tell you want they (The fans) like and what they do not like by if they support your efforts. In the Case of the Great Hemp Tour this be by at this stage of events helping by donating to the Tour via Pay Pal or Buying a T Shirt, so I can keep this page up and running as The Great Hemp Tour looks for Sponsors gets the “Official” T Shirt design done, A Bumper Sicker the Swag type loot to sell to be able to fund the Tour itself.
You can find that info if you like to donate at the top of the site.
To be blunt the fans so far have told me loud and clear that they might like the idea but are not interested in helping, thanks anyway
I must say The Great Hemp Tour has gotten a few donations sold a T Shirt and I am very very thankful to them who have, but its not enough to keep this going long, that’s fine.
When I inquired of others what the issues where if any I was informed that many thought the Great Hemp Tour was about driving around and getting high, sorry that was NEVER the point.
Still The Great Hemp Tour has opened many doors with a great deal of oppertunties that I will be undertaking, I will be using income I get from that to fund the Tour, still going to happen just going to take longer and could even morph into more of a Hispanic/Underground culture type gig and I am very cool with that.
From the efforts working with Hispanic News On Line alone doors are opening and I am going to see what is on the other side of them
As well the Podcast is doing well looking forward to what that will be bringing

That is just the tip of the Iceberg, I found him to be a caring spokesman, often leading from the front far more then just telling others what to do.

From working with UFW in the past to getting Hemp Seeds seized (Unlawfully I think) from the Drug Enforcement Agency, Rudy never gives up until the task is done
After doing both A Rock Stars of Agriculture and A Great Hemp Tour Podcast with him, I feel I have a duty to make him a Hemp Hero!
Working in partnerships is always better for this allows more resources for projects, sharing of ideas, better able to say get the message out.
In the Case of the Great Hemp Tour our partnership with Hispanic News On Line has opened many doors allowing The Great Hemp Tour to access far more information on many many subjects dealing with a huge range of issues I find within Hemp from Health to Race, from History to law enforcement.
I am very thankful to the Publisher of Hispanic News On Line for the opportunity to work with him.
I was asked today how one might get on the Podcast.
As the focus of the Great Hemp Tour is Industrial Hemp , I have quickly found out there are just so many issues connected to this from History to The War On Drugs and then some, in even the short time I have been planing this, I have also found that the many many stories that go along with the issues have not been talked of a lot and need to be.
So I will be having guests on about those subjects.
At the same time If I just focus on what I can only call the tragic issues of the past with the hard work still to come I would perhaps you as well become depressed.
So why not also bring on others who have what I hope be intriguing information/stories that I hope the fans of the Great Hemp Tour would be interested in knowing about
